Liberon Superior Danish Oil is a blend of pure tung oil and natural oils which protect hard and soft woods. It is a penetrating oil, which brings out the natural grain of the timber and provides a satin to gloss sheen. With added UV filters to help prevent discolouration from the sun it is suitable for both interior and exterior use.
Interior woodwork: Ensure the surface is bare: remove any wax finishes with Liberon Wax and Polish Remover and any varnish finishes with Liberon Fine Wood Stripper. Clean, dry and ensure the surface is dust free. If required stain the wood with Liberon Palette Wood Dye before oiling.
Exterior woodwork: Ensure the surface is clean, dry and free from decaying timber. Surface greying or mould should also be removed as this may cause blackening of the timber.
Interior woodwork: Apply with a brush or lint-free cotton cloth and allow to penetrate for 5 to 10 minutes before wiping off the excess with a clean lint-free cloth. Allow to dry for a minimum of S hours and apply more coats as required. We recommend a minimum of 3 coats. For best results gently rub with Liberon Ultra Fine Steel Wool (0000) between coats. In damp areas such as kitchens and bathrooms more coats will be required to ensure adequate protection.
Exterior woodwork: Apply as above. Application of 4 coats will give minimum protection. Exposed areas will require more coats. It is important to ensure sufficient coats of oil are applied initially to give maximum protection. It is not necessary to remove the excess on sawn timber, but do wipe off any runs.
Important: Oil finishes bring out the natural colours of timber. A wet surface will be an indication of the final colour. Always test product on a spare surface or inconspicuous area for colour, compatibility and end result.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Interior woodwork: Surfaces may be cleaned using a damp cloth and spills should be wiped up immediately. For stubborn stains a mild detergent can be used. Surfaces need to be re-oiled once a year or more, depending upon usage.
Exterior woodwork: Clean off any surface grime, moulds etc. (sand if required) before re-oiling. Exterior timbers need to be maintained on a regular basis, at least twice a year.
- Superior Danish Oil may darken some timbers and blackening may occur on some external timbers.
- Store Liberon Superior Danish Oil at a temperature above 5°C. Always replace the lid otherwise the oil can deteriorate.
- Superior Danish Oil is not suitable for use on external oak. Liberon Pure Tung Oil is recommended for this purpose.
- If the excess is not removed and the surface becomes sticky, wipe with white spirit to remove the sticky film and allow to dry before continuing.
